I’m A Celebrity 2020 final live – Giovanna Fletcher crowned Queen of the Castle after 12 million vote for their winner

GIOVANNA Fletcher has won I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! beating Jordan North.

Jordan and Giovanna were joint favourites to win but the blogger and mum of three managed to pip the DJ to the crown.

Giovanna was the last woman standing on the show, with many fans hoping that she would go all the way to the top and be named Queen of the Castle.

Earlier, Vernon Kay had finished in third place in a nail-biting finale that saw 12million votes cast.

  • CELEBS CELEBRATE GIOVANNA'S WIN

    Giovanna has a lot of celebrity friends and family, and they are overjoyed by her win tonight.

    Her brother, former Towie star Mario, accidentally woke up his son celebrating her victory.

    He tweeted: “Screamed so loud I woke up Parker.”

    Harry Judd, who is in McFly with Gi's husband Tom, tweeted: “She did it!!! QUEEN

    @MrsGiFletcher.”

    Gi has also had lots of support from former King of the Jungle Matt Willis and his wife Emma as well as former Queen of the Jungle, Vicky Pattison.

  • JORDAN'S FAN CLUB

    However, in such a closely fought final, wit 12 million votes being cast, it was obviously going to be a disappointment for some that Jordan didn't win.

    Taking to Twitter, one viewer wrote: “Wanted Jordan to win! She deserved it! Well done GI

    To be honest They’re both King and Queen of the castle in my eyes..”

    Another tweeted: “Jordan really should’ve won.”

    A third added: “so upset jordan didn’t win wtf.”

  • ALL HAIL THE QUEEN

    Viewers are delighted to see Giovanna win and have taken to Twitter to celebrate.

    One wrote: “Well done to giovanna loved all of the finalists this year.”

    Another added: “Considering I’d never heard of her before this, so happy Giovanna won imaceleb , couldn’t help but smile when watching her this series. Da iawn to everyone at @ITV for a great series in Cymru – needed it more than ever before this year.”

    A third agreed, writing: “Growing up a McFly fan, I've always known that Giovanna Fletcher is a ray of sunshine with a heart of gold and I'm so pleased to see that the entire country now knows this. Nobody deserves this more. Her positivity and optimism is what we all need!”

  • PROUD HUSBAND

    Giovanna's husband Tom Fletcher and their three children have been watching the show live, and the singer has shared an adorable clip of the moment she was crowned Queen of the Jungle.

    As he cheered, their son cried: “Mummy's won!”

    So cute!

  • Well there you have it guys, our winner has been crowned!

    Giovanna could barely speak at the shock of being named Queen of the Castle and told Ant and Dec to ask her again in a week how she felt.

    Runner up Jordan said there was no one he'd rather finish as runner up to, which was very gracious.

    He will be chuffed to see how much support he's had behind him throughout the series which will be a great consolation prize.

  • Giovanna and Jordan have headed to the studio to talk about their time on the show before one of them is crowned.

    Asked how they felt about being in the final two, Jordan said: “Never in a million years did I think I would be in the final two.”

    Gi added: “It's so bizarre.”

  • I’M A Celebrity bosses are secretly planning to keep the show in Wales next year — despite more than half of viewers telling a Sun survey they want a return to Oz.

    In our poll, 55 per cent said ITV should ditch the temporary venue of Gwrych Castle and head back to the jungle in Murwillumbah, New South Wales.

    Only 23 per cent actually preferred the haunted 19th-century pile.

    Yet we can reveal producers have already inquired about local storage, saying they would require the space for the next two years at least.

    Production chiefs want a place big enough to house the purpose-built sets and trials built in just ten weeks to get the current series on air.

    The Sun has previously revealed how producers had asked about future use of the castle on alternate years — ­meaning 2021 would see the series return to Australia, before coming back to Wales in 2022.

  • LAST SUPPER

    Going back to last night, Vernon, Gi and Jordan are seen having their final meal.

    They all had their favourite food. They were over the moon and couldn’t believe their eyes as each meal arrived.

    Giovanna had bruschetta, fish and chips, apple crumble with custard, red wine and chocolate.

    Vernon had prawn cocktail, chicken and sweet potato mash, treacle sponge, cup of tea and sourdough bread with marmite and cottage cheese.

    Jordan had prawn cocktail, corned beef hash, jelly/angel delight, Guinness and peanut butter cups.

  • On his last trial shown earlier tonight, he said: “Do you know what was weird with those spider scorpions? They smelt of aloe vera!”

    “Third place is more than I expected, it's been phenomenal.”

    On who he wants to win, he said Jordan and Gi have both played “significant” roles in camp but pushed for an answer, he went with Jordan for the journey he's been on.

  • Vernon says it was “everything he wanted it to be and more.”

    “You just have to be yourself and that was one of the best thing about this camp, we were all ourselves.”

    He continued: “We have a huge spectrum of people in there and it all started when Jordan spewed on the cliff, I thought 'that's me not doing a trial for a week, it's going to be him!”

  • Vernon is chatting to Ant and Dec about his time in the Castle.

    He said: “It was well and truly awesome.”

    He also spoke of his shock at making the final, saying: “I was so shocked when Shane left last night, he propped up the morale in camp every night. All that means something when you're in there as we had a lot of dips.

    “We said today, this is it, this is the show, there's no show after tonight, big tick, I've completed it.”

  • THIRD PLACE REVEALED

    Vernon has finished in third place.

    That means it's between Giovanna and Jordan for the crown.

    Will we have a King or Queen of the Castle? We'll find out very soon.

  • The obligatory series montage is playing out now.

    There's been some good trials hasn't there?

    I have missed the aerial ones that usually feature when the show is in Australia, but I think under the circumstances, the show has done really well to keep it interesting.

    And they have definitely saved some of the best trials for last tonight.

  • WHO HAS LEFT I'M A CELEBRITY SO FAR?

    There are now just three campmates left on the show.

    So far nine people have been voted off the show, and they are:

    Ninth to leave – actor Shane Richie, 56

    Seventh and eighth to leave – AJ Pritchard, 26, and Mo Farah, 37

    Fifth and sixth to leave – Jessica Plummer, 28, and Russell Watson, 54

    Third and fourth to leave – Beverley Callard, 63, and Victoria Derbyshire, 52

    Second to leave – West End Star Ruthie Henshall, 53

    First to leave – Paralympian Hollie Arnold, 26

  • SHANE Richie says he had no idea who show favourite Jordan North was before he met him in the castle.

    The EastEnders star, who formed a close friendship with the Radio 1 DJ, even showered with him during their time in Wales.

    He said: “I knew nothing about him.

    “But he has such a big heart — and he was so naive.

    “He’d ask me questions all the time about the business.

    “I told him to ask me anything and he did. We all saw him grow.”
